Behold a Lady

Updated on October 14, 2009

Behold a Lady Lyrics
Artist(Band):OutKast

Sophisti-funk {?}, aristo-cats
Distinguished stars, clean up your acts
Pull up your pants, ladies and gents
Please, act like you got some sense
You know what I really wanna know?
Where do all the good girls go?
What club they hang at?

[Chorus]
Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap... you deserve it all [Repeat]
[Ad libs]
Candy-coated unicorns are quite hard to find
The classic lady, a rare breed indeed
Is that make and model discontinued?

[Verse 1]
Today I might snow, tomorrow I'll rain
3000's always changing but you stay the same
And I need that, hey I need that (in my life)
When I feel washed up and inadequate
And throw all my songs away, no matter how mad I get
You make me smile, you make me smile
You make me smile, you make me... (Hoooooooo!)
You're the anchor that holds me down
When my ship is sinking
You won't let me drown and I'm grateful
(Awwaww Awwawwawwawwawwwwawww!)

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Yo' mama's old fashioned(fashioned), yo' daddy don't play(don't play)
You'll always be this lovely
'Cause they raised you that way
Hallelujah! Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
You're not extra extra, you're so plain Jane
The yin to my yang, darlin'
You've got that thang and you know it
But yet you dont(But yet you don't and that's what's so cool)
You don't say too much, but when you do it's profound
In the street you hold your head high
At home you get low down for me
(Can't get no lower, can't get no lower, can't get no lower, yeah!)
Hooo! You're the anchor that holds me down
When my ship is sinking, you won't let me drown (Aaaaaaahh!)
(Ad libs)
Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums
To see what a lady looks like
So if you find one, I beg of you, hold her tight
Yes, if you spot one, good sir, treat her right
Benjamin Andre signing off
Thanks a million
Good luck and goodnight



Where did all the ladies go? I loved this song when I first heard it because it seems based on what the bible says about a woman not being known for her expensive jewelry or elaborate adornment but from the beauty she has inside. Now we have a lot of women who are glamour on the outside but have no substance inside.

What is a lady?

A woman who allows you to guess what her body might look like underneath the clothing rather than being able to tell exactly where everything is at first glance.

What is a lady?

A woman who respects your relationship. She never tries to flirt with or sleep with your friends while she is with you or even after you break up because she respects herself and you at least that much.

What is a lady?

A person who can listen and provide mental support to your dreams.

What is a lady?

Someone who’s not just in it for herself but she’s happy being supportive to the team of us.

What is a lady?

A woman who doesn’t give her body to every Tom, Dick, and Harry after a few drinks.

What is a lady?

A woman who will not allow you to step to her any other way than correctly because she demands and deserves that.

What is a lady?

Someone who is intelligent enough to talk to your co-workers and your friends with intelligent conversation.

What is a lady?

Someone you can trust to have your best interest at heart.

What is a lady?

Someone who cares for you as if you are one with her soul.

What is a lady?

Someone who is beautiful inside and out.

What is a lady?

Someone who is faithful to you.

What is a lady?

Someone who loves you unconditionally.

What is a lady?

Your representative who brings honor to you.

Andre 3000 is right to say that very soon you will have to go to a museum to see what one looks like.
